Ready in 10 minutes
This is a nice and easy lemonade recipe for kids to try, with just a little help from an adult. If you like a slightly tart lemonade, use only 3/4 cup of the sugar. If you like a sweeter sip, use the full cup of sugar. This recipe makes enough for 10 cups of lemonade.
Combine the water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Kids: Roll the lemons on the counter with the palms of your hands, pressing down hard with one hand on top of the other.
Halve and juice the lemons. Remove the sugar syrup from the heat and stir in the lemon juice. Set aside to cool completely. You can store the lemonade syrup in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Kids: To make lemonade, place 1/4 cup of lemonade syrup in a glass, add ice cubes, if you like, and fill with water or seltzer.
